I am using is a SATA DVD-RW drive for a project I am doing for a friend and it does not show in the boot options of the motherboard. The mobo is Asus K8V SE Deluxe. Now there are 2 sata slots with the VIA Chipset and it's placed there at the 2nd slot. The first slot houses the SATA hdd system disk. Problem is I'd have to install an IDE DVD drive to have boot-to-cd options because as stated earlier the SATA DVD-RW doesn't show.
There is a Promise RAID slot(Fastrack) in the board but CD/DVD atapi drives are not accomodated there(I read it in the manual) so there...that's my problem. :4-dontkno:4-dontkno
